The number 6......

I just found this beautiful #6 in an etsy shop Vantagestudios . I am not sure where my obsession with numbers and letters came from.

It has become quite the OCD kinda thing. I have always had a weird thing with numbers. For instance , my name before being married was completely even ( I have a thing for even things).
First name 8, middle 4, last 8. I like even numbers and will change things to make them even often. I also associate colors with numbers. Although I love this 6.... it should be in a cool color. Even numbers are cool and odd are warm. That is not to say that a cool red can be even and a warm blue odd. Find this weird yet?? I also do the same thing with the alphabet, however it makes no rhythmic sense. A is even and cool but so is B and C is odd go figure.
In any case. I am trying to break this little confining and sometimes annoying cycle.... so I might just have to buy this #6 in its glorious orange hue after all.
Talk to you soon,

They are just very cool...great color for the six. How funny my word verification to post this was your last name!

I'm laughing, but I do understand letter and number obsessions.

I, however, work in groups of 5. If I find four of something I like, I'll have to find a 5th. I love the letter F, but E kind of bugs me (perhaps it has something to do with those old eye exams).

I find that orange six rather enticing.

Oh YES! I know what you mean. I love the numbers 1 and 4 and 8 but not 2 or 3 or 6?? Why? Who knows! :) That #6 is great! xoxo
